From Alaska to Argentina in Their DIY Van Conversion

While plenty of people travel in their vans, not too many have a specific multi-year route mapped out. But in the case of Jess & Roberto, they are going from Alaska to Argentina! They thought it would take them a couple of years, but as they get used to a slow travel pace, they realize it might take 3 or more.

Neither of them had any previous experience in trades or building anything. They worked desk jobs, but they figured out how to convert their van on their own, and now they support themselves with their YouTube channel. Unlike many rigs, their bed is in the front of the van — check it out!
